Erica's Rhubarb Cake

"This decadent cake came from a student's grandmother, and was the child's request for her class treat. Her mother also put confectioners frosting on it while hot and sprinkled with some chopped pecans. The class loved this, and so does my family:) The rhubarb and the batter."

    I don't think I've made a rhubarb cake before and this one was easy enough for someone who doesn't have much luck in the cake baking department (I never do!) - super moist and sweet without being overly sweet. Like another reviewer, I used splenda and whole wheat flour without any trouble - although I think my cake would have been fluffier if I had used all white flour and sugar. When I added the rhubarb there was a bit of wet sugary mix that remained in the bottom of the bowl - I didn't add it for fear that the cake would become soggy; I would add it next time though. Made for ZWT6.

    This cake is so good. In the cake batter I used only 1/2 cup sugar. But other than that, followed the directions. Thanks WiGal :) Made for the Zwizzle Chicks of ZWT
